This week on State of the Art, Annika welcomes in Hylton Shaw and Samantha Dinning, directors of No Time For Quiet, a documentary following participants of Girls Rock! Melbourne as they grow and discover their voices over the course of a week-long school holiday program and beyond. 

Girls Rock! is an international network of independent arts and feminist social justice groups, with a focus on running band camps that provide girls, trans and gender non-conforming youths a supportive safe space to grow and express themselves via music. 

Featuring appearances from rock sensation Courtney Barnett, local punk trio Cable Ties and Sikh-Australian slam poet Sukhjit Khalsa, No Time For Quiet joins camp participants as they discover the empowering strength of music through Girls Rock!

Produced by Pip Campey and supported by the MIFF Premiere Fund, No Time For Quiet offers a remarkable insight into contemporary teenage lives and an optimistic message of inclusion and acceptance.
